Add Roller Furling: Cost estimates

I have a 28 foot, 7,000 pound sloop with hanked-on foresails on a 34-foot forestay. I am seeking some advice on adding roller furling. We are very casual cruisers / daysailers we'd generally opt for a simple, lower cost but still capable solution over a performance high-end solution.

So, my questions.

1. Can a handy person install one's own roller furling gear? (The mast will be down anyway this winter.)

2. CDI's units appear to be lower cost, but simple and capable. Thoughts?

3. What might I expect to pay to have a 130 hank-on genoa re-cut for roller furling use?

Any other thoughts / advice welcomed.
